Do You Retire Your Running Shoes

Topic • 36 replies

I have a closet full of running shoes as does my son. He makes the comment he has retired certian shoes. Working in my shoe shop I hear stories of old running shoes. So I thought I would ask what do all of you do with the shoes that you no longer run in?

Newest reply

I think I may have to retire the sauconeys soon. Looks like more shoe shopping in my future.
